Rankings: Shoulder crunch

Shoulder Crunch should be low, to minimize the force compressing the shoulder upon impact, when the centripetal force suddenly becomes more than the centrifugal force. The Shoulder Crunch rankings under the five benchmark conditions were weighted, then these weighted ranks were summed to produced the weighted sum that determined the overall rank. By far the predominant value was that under the Second Benchmark Condition (110 mph serve). To see the range of Shoulder Crunch values under each of the Benchmark Conditions, click here. The ranking is from best (Prince Graphite Classic OS) to worst (Wilson Triad Hammer 5.0 MP).
